WBC to reconsider decision regarding RE3 Payments

We the undersigned residents of West Berkshire Council would like the Council to reverse their decision to not pay the RE3 subsidy payment which has meant we can now longer use the Smallmead Facilities. It is unfair to make residents on the outside edges of West Berkshire travel a further 30 miles to dispose of rubbish and we think this decision will see a steep increase in fly tipping.

Arrest Anjem Choudray for being accessory to murder of Lee Rigby

Muslim cleric Anjem Choudray has publicly disclosed that the killer of Lee Rigby (Michael Adebolajo) attended his sermons and marches.

Defend Gay Conversion Therapy

We, the undersigned, consider that Theresa May's proposed ban on offering therapy, healing or prayer for people wishing to be free of same-sex attraction is an attack on freedom of speech, on freedom of choice, on freedom of association, and inasmuch as Christianity may form the backdrop to a desire to be free from same-sex desires, or may constitute an element of the healing process offered, on religious freedom. We call upon Members of Parliament to reject this attempt to to criminalise ideas.

Elba Ground rent campaign

Last Saturday morning residents of the Elba housing estate received letters detailing council rises to their ground rent from between £50-£75 up to anything from £250-£3600 amounting to increases of up to 5000%.
